    Vortioxetine

    I know its the Christmas period and Ive been eating more rubbish than normal, but does Vortioxetine cause bloating? My stomach feels uncomfortably bloated and I look like Ive got a football up my top (I doubled the dose today)
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Sorry that is one of the meds I’ve not taken so can’t really help. Have you read the PIL?
    Sometimes I prefer dogs to people. Actually, thats a lie. I will always prefer dogs to people.

    It didn't affect me like that but that's not to say it isn't a side effect.

    I had read the PIL, I always do. That mentioned various gastrointestinal issues but not bloating specifically. But drugs.com does mention it which is why I wanted to check if anyone else had had the same problem

    I mainly had lightheadedness and dizziness when I started it and with every increase.

    I definitely got a bit bloated when I started but it did resolve and moving around helped a bit too.... but I am menopausal and bloat easily anyway
